Message from the Principal
Welcome to Merryhill! July marks the start of our new school year at Merryhill. Although we are very sad to see our Pre-K children graduate and head off to Kindergarten, we are anxious to begin a new year with all of our new and continuing students.
We will kick off our new year with our regular Links to Learning curriculum, however, the first 10 weeks will assist your child in moving from the younger age level classes to the class that they are now currently assigned. During our summer months we have planned many fun activities that we are sure your children will love, but it will also be a very important time for your child’s new teacher to get to know your child and make their initial observations and assessments which will be the key to our first Parent Reports in September.
On Thursday, July 2nd we will have our annual 4th of July Spectacular. If you would like to donate mentos or liters of diet coke for the occasion, please let us know. Don’t forget to wear your red, white, and blue and join in the fun!
On Monday, August 3rd, we will hold our very first Merryhill Color Run! Every child needs a white t-shirt for the event. Bring in your white shirt to school at any time. We are looking forward to a very colorful event!
As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to speak with me or Miss Linda at any time. We are looking forward to a spectacular year!
